ABOUT THE PLANT
Colocasia esculenta 'Mojito' is a cultivar of Colocasia esculenta, commonly known as Elephant Ear or Taro. Here are some features of Colocasia 'Mojito':
Leaf appearance: Colocasia 'Mojito' has large, heart-shaped leaves that are primarily green with striking variegation. The variegation consists of light green to creamy white speckles, spots, or marbling patterns that cover the leaves. The variegation adds a unique and eye-catching aspect to the foliage.
Growth habit: Colocasia 'Mojito' is a herbaceous perennial plant that can reach a height of 3 to 6 feet (0.9 to 1.8 meters). It forms a clump of upright stems with leaves emerging directly from the base. The leaves are typically large and can grow up to 2 feet (60 centimeters) in length.
Light requirements: Colocasia 'Mojito' thrives in partial shade to full shade. It prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate some direct morning or evening sun. However, excessive exposure to intense sunlight can scorch the leaves. Providing filtered or dappled light is ideal.
Temperature and humidity: This plant prefers warm temperatures between 65°F and 85°F (18°C to 29°C). It is not frost-tolerant and should be protected from freezing temperatures. Colocasia 'Mojito' appreciates higher humidity levels, so misting the leaves or placing it in a humid environment can be beneficial.
Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant whenever the top inch (2.5 centimeters) of soil feels dry. Ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.
